Full Article Attached Rapid Pace of Development for Mozilla Firebird

Sunday August 17th, 2003

If you haven't downloaded a Mozilla Firebird nightly build in the last few weeks, you may be surprised to discover how many enhancements the application has received. In this extended full article, MozillaZine takes a look at some of Firebird's more interesting recent improvements, including support for sidebar panels with webpage content and a selector for alternative stylesheets. Remember that you need to be using a nightly build and not a milestone release to see these new features in action. Refer to a resource such as The Burning Edge if you need help deciding which nightly to download and discuss Firebird with other followers of the project in our Mozilla Firebird forums.

#7 About style selector

1 - The style selector is a very good addition. But it behaves a little differently as the Style Selector extension I used to use: it doesnt show up if there isn't any alternate stylesheet. As a web developper, it's then impossible to see how a page looks like without any style, unless I install the Style Selector extension.

2 - Something very annoying: the 'about:blank'. I don't see the goal of displaying this in the address bar. Before, when you opened a new tab, the address bar was empty, but now it is prefilled by this useless 'about:blank'... (I do know what it is, I just find this is useless, and annoying, to display it)
